Mobile Smart City Services

Leveraging NXP’s already popular MIFARE ICs, the MIFARE 2GO cloud service digitizes traditional Smart City services so they can be seamlessly managed and used on NFC-enabled devices. MIFARE 2GO is a cloud service that manages digitized MIFARE product-based credentials. It connects services with devices – and helps operators issue their services instantly on any NFC-enabled mobile device.

MIFARE 2GO delivers a world of richer user experiences beyond what traditional fare payment systems have provided until today – before, during, and after the journey – independent of location and time. Public transportation has just gone mobile and can now offer the same convenience as alternative and increasingly popular travel options, like ride sharing provide.

The ease of mobile fare payments can also extend beyond transit applications. With NXP’s MIFARE 2GO, digital credentials can also be used with smart card access control systems, loyalty rewards, and more.

For the benefit of maximum security and minimal integration effort, NXP advocates the usage of a tamper-resistant, EAL 5+ certified Secure Element (SE) as the most effective choice of implementation for MIFARE 2GO.

Mobility as a Starting Point

Benefits for Passengers and Transit Agencies

Using MIFARE 2GO, transit agencies benefit from reduced cash handling, decreased card lifecycle management and infrastructure costs, while offering time savings for passengers. Optimized to work with existing MIFARE product-based infrastructures, and designed to support mobile and wearable platforms globally, MIFARE 2GO is an extension of NXP's MIFARE portfolio and offers a compelling combination of convenience and scalability.

Mobile Student ID Enables Access and Micropayments at Campus

Transact's Mobile Credential for Google Pay leverages NXP’s secure MIFARE 2GO cloud service to enable mobile access and micropayments at universities. Student IDs are being digitized using MIFARE 2GO which helps universities in the US to facilitate a variety of mobile ID transactions at dining halls, athletic facilities, libraries, campus events, bookstores, laundry rooms, and more.

Joining Forces With Google

Working closely with Google, NXP has integrated MIFARE 2GO with Google Pay.

Seamless integration of existing MIFARE solutions into Google Pay enables transport agencies and other service providers to enter into a direct dialog with consumers.

So, like you can store your bank cards on Google Pay, you can also store your MIFARE product-based transit cards, student ID cards, and more on Google Pay. Have a look at the short video clip on the right to see how this looks like.

Get inspired by the first deployment: Google, NXP and Las Vegas Monorail have collaborated to bring the future of mobile ticketing to Las Vegas.
